$665.00

Cyrex Array 10 

May be useful when evaluating immune reactions to foods, raw and/or modified, food enzymes, lectins and artificial food additives, including meat glue, colorings and gums.

  1. Early detection of dietary-related triggers of autoimmune reactivity.
  2. Monitor the effectiveness of customized dietary protocol in your patient or client.
  3. Recommended for those who seek a life-long health and wellness strategy.
  4. Present with unexplained symptoms whether gastrointestinal, neurological, dermatological or behavioral in nature.
  5. Are suspected of having increased intestinal permeability, which is the gateway for environmentally-induced autoimmune disorders.

Description

This unique, revolutionary panel measures reactivity to 180 food antigens in the cooked, raw, modified or processed form on the same panel. Array 10 assists in early detection of dietary-related triggers of autoimmune reactivity and monitors the effectiveness of customized dietary protocols.

  • Seek a life-long health and wellness strategy™.
  • Present with unexplained symptoms whether gastrointestinal, neurological, dermatological or behavioral in nature.

CYREX ARRAY 10 INFO

Special Instructions BEFORE You Test

Q. Are there any medications, foods, conditions, or other factors that could interfere with the results of a Cyrex test?

A: Yes. While Cyrex is unable to provide an exhaustive answer to this question due to the interactive complexities and varieties of medications and patient circumstances, the following has been noted:

a. Immunosuppressant and corticosteroid drugs can reduce antibody production and cause false-negative results.
b. Limited assessments on the effects of aspirin, acetaminophen, and antipsychotics on Arrays 1-4 have been performed. No noticeable effects were observed.
c. Inhalers can affect the results of Cyrex’s oral fluid testing (Array 14). Wait two weeks after completion of inhalant dosages before collecting the specimen.
d. Unknown cross-reactive epitopes from foods and microorganisms may stimulate antibody production in the absence of a true antigen. Cyrex has already developed Array 4 in order to recognize the most common antigens in this regard.
e. A gluten-free diet can cause false-negative results on gluten protein/peptide tests.
f. Certain conditions, such as ileal pouch surgery, may cause a false positive celiac serology.1

1. Lian L, Remzi FH, Kiran RP, Fazio VW, Shen B. Clinical implication of false-positive celiac serology in patients with ileal pouch. Dis Colon Rectum. 2010 Oct; 53(10):1446-1451.

Q: How soon after finishing steroids can I do Cyrex testing?

a: 60 days. It takes this period of time for the medication to clear the system and allow the
normalized production of antibodies, required for immune testing, to resume.

Collection Instructions

Cyrex serum specimens may be drawn in-office or at the lab location of your choosing (not Quest or Lap Corp), it does not need to be at a Cyrex contracted facility. The client is responsible for any fees incurred when utilizing a non-Cyrex-contracted phlebotomy service provider. Phlebotomy and shipping instructions are provided in every collection kit.
